Fatu's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase more palm oil, rice, fish and cooking seasoning to expand her restaurant business.
Meet 47-year-old Fatu from Magburaka, Northern area in Sierra Leone. She is married with six children. For 20 years, Fatu has established her cookery business. She began her business because she wants to upgrade her standard of living. She works at the business from 8:00 am until 5:30 pm, six days per week. She says that the main challenge to her business is price inflation and insufficient finance to expand her business. Fatu requires a loan in order to purchase more palm oil, rice, fish and cooking seasoning. She hopes that the extra income from this loan will allow her to change her status of living and increase her business. In the future, Fatu plans to expand her business more than ever. She thanks you for your support.
